    I'm going to get an iPhone 5

    Before this thread goes off in the wrong direction i would like to say the following. I LOVE android! I started out with a Droid 2 Global, then lost it and got a R2d2 droid 2 and i bricked that and i now have a Galaxy Nexus. But since i bricked my r2d2 before my upgrade i had to buy my gnex at full retail(good thing for a best buy credit card haha) which leaves me with an available upgrade.

    Now before i would have never thought about getting an iphone, never really liked it. But with the ip4 i kinda started to change my view since i like the way it looked and how it felt in my hands. Now with the ip5 i just love how it looks! And from the video's i've seen it looks to run really smooth. Performance seems to be pretty solid as well.

    Does this mean that i'm ditching android? Hell no!
    I'll still plan on constantly flashing new roms on my gnex. I just feel like i want to give ios a chance. I know that i can do more with android but in my eyes it'll be a nice breath of fresh air.

    *UPDATE*
    I'm actually going to wait to see how the Nokia Lumia 920 is before i pull the trigger, that phone has really caught my attention. I'm not so sure about the new nexus devices at this point.

    Nothing wrong with your decision. i'm all about trying another OS and that's why when Windows Phone 8 and Nokia drop on VZW I'm going to snatch me a phone up. I have my N7 for my Android addiction and I get to experience a new OS. Good luck and enjoy!

    Robot Cow, I think its cool you get this opportunity. There is no doubt apple is solid and it is a good time to jump on board because you're not going to feel the frustration of having to update all your old plugs /connections with the adapter.

    Keep us updated on things you really like about apple and the things you miss about android. I don't think there are many who know Android real well, first hand, like you then trying out apple. I think most people have either stuck with one or the other. You can give us an informed objective opinion. I would love the opportunity to truly try out another os for curiosity sake.

    Nokia 920 is going to be a great piece of hardware. Not sure if you like Nokia, if not the HTC Windows Phone 8x is a pretty nice handset

    The iPhone5 will certainly be a new "trendsetter", and I am sure we haven't seen a smidgen of what it can do. There's no question that the iOS is a smoother OS and that's due to the tight integration between chipsets, OS and control on developers for apps, but I think the gap is closing very quickly and may actually already have closed with JellyBean and Project Butter. There's another project out there - Linaro, that if integrated into the OS going forward could push Android above iOS in performance, but that remains to be seen.

    I wish I had the discretionary capital to have all the different toys to play with and experiment, but alas the new phone every two is about my limit now. Perhaps I could get luck and pick up either a Windows or iOS phone on eBay, but in either case they're probably not going to be the latest and greatest.
